you can come to any of the shows go to hannity.com and we a lot of pictures. i think you will like it. greta is next. see you tomorrow night. thanks for being with us. >> greta: fox news alert. seven people are dead after an explosion at a west virginia coal mine. joining us jeff jenkins. what is the latest? >> reporter: kevin strickland with the federal mine safety health administration and the state office of homeland security director have just briefed reporters down at the mining scene. they say the rescue efforts are continuing for the 19 unaccounted ford miners. they have hope maybe these miners have gotten into an underground emergency rescue chamber. you may remember after the sego disaster four years ago several new regulations went in. one required mines to have these rescue chambers. we've talked to a minor who works at this mine. they have the inflatable-type
10:01pm
of chambers. if they were able to reach that, they would have 96 hours of oxygen. that would be great news if they were able to reach that right now search efforts continue to get into where the miners are. >> greta: do i understand from what you are saying that no contact has been made we don't know if they are alive or some? any noise at all from below that could be transmitted to the surface? >> reporter: we don't know that right now. as you mentioned, there are seven dead. two injured. originally nine miners together they found. two were injured. one of those miners is in icu unit in charleston. the seven are dead. right now they are still trying to reach the 19. it is going to take several because of this deep underground mine. >> greta: of course it will be nonstop effort to reach those men. jeff, thank you. stay with fox news for the latest on this breaking news story. >> tonight, the most powerful man in the united states senate goes on the record.
10:02pm
senate majority leader harry reid. we press him about the so-called cornhusker kickback. >> i know that fox loves to be rate anything that is democratic in nature. let me say ben nelson is an honorable man. really a good senator he represent sents his state well. ben nelson and i worked on a number of issues. we of course worked on the medicaid issue, former governor of the state he understands it very well. i knew if i this for nebraska, by the time the legislation out of senate, i would have it for everybody. that's what happened. and i'm totally comfortable with that. >> greta: in interview does get fiery you will see it minutes from now. plus, tiger woods is talking. this time taking questions from reporters. >> when i realized what i had done the full magnitude of it, it is pretty brutal. i take full responsibility for
10:03pm
what i've done. i'll take that lightly -- i don't take that lightly. >> greta: karl rove and president obama teaming up to work to hear that right. karl rove in his own words coming up. >> greta: live in las vegas at caesar's palace breaking news in the night over health care. president obama and democrats look out two more state attorneys general joined the lawsuit. the state attorneys general in indiana and north dakota, joining alabama, colorado, florida, louisiana, michigan, nebraska, pennsylvania, south carolina, texas, utah, washington, south dakota and i'd home and then there's virginia which -- idaho. and then there's virginia. if you were not counting that is 16 states. indiana attorney general the newest member of the lawsuit joins us now. good evening sir. >> good to be with you.
10:04pm
>> greta: sir, it is interesting in looking at the indiana's path to joining this lawsuit. i understand that you previously did research for senator luger. senator from your state, tell me why, when and what you learned? >> well, greta, there's a statute in indiana that allow us the legislators, the congressmen and senators from our state to ago the attorney general to do an investigation and report on any federal statute proposed and how it would impact the state of indiana. as well as how we see it in terms of federal authority. whether it encroaches on a state. senator luger asked for an pin. this research to be done back in january. in february, we produced a 55-page report. which does quite a bit of analysis both on the impact on indiana particularly and on some of the legal questions that are in front of everybody's mind.
10:05pm
>> greta: in terms of the impact, the legal impact, tell me, what is it that your office concluded? this is well before the legislation was signed, of course there at least was a december 24th, senate bill that everyone is talking about. what did your con -- what was your conclusion? >> i didn't say that it was unconstitutional. what i said, it was unprecedented. there's open questions that have not been asked and answered before the u.s. supreme court. one more step that the federal government is taking in terms of breathing additional -- additional authority into the commerce clause. there's questions whether they have this authority. it is incumbent on the attorneys general who represent states sovereign authority as well as individuals that resnide our state. i think it is part of job description that check to see whether the government has this authority they claim in this statute.
10:06pm
>> greta: you're talking about the mandate in particular, zeroing in on whether the federal government can order people to buy health insurance, am i correct? >> well, there's two main things. first the individual mandate. for the first time ever the federal government will require individuals to purchase a commercial product. it is really -- even in the -- in all the years they've had additional authority breathed into it through the commerce clause, this isn't regulating any activity between the states or even within the states. you are really talking about regulating inactivity. you don't have to do anything. even if you're just wanting to be left alone, you're still required to do this. this is not a federal program this is the requirement that you purchase a commercial product. so, again it is unprecedented. i can't say that it is unconstitutional. i can say there's not a case on point that says, that the federal government has this
10:07pm
authority. >> greta: you're a republican. your governor is republican. i take it you are not taking heat from the governor. what has been the reaction in the community able to tell or is it too soon? >> i think there's an overwhelming sense of concern from hoosiers, those who aren't watching the basketball game tonight might be watching this. there are all kind of concern that the federal government has always encroached on their personal lives as well as the state's role in their lives. i think the idea that people in indiana are very worried about this. i did take a little heat from some of the democrat members of the legislature saying i would spend too much money or that there was some other questions about whether this was political. frankly, it is all been politicized by the way this was done in washington on strictly a partisan vote. so the republicans in my state
10:08pm
have all been encouraging me. frankly, everyone who wants to have the supreme court raise this question before the supreme court so we can know whether the federal government has this authority, they are all encouraging me to do this. >> greta: attorney general, thank you sir. >> you're more than welcome. >> greta: here's a riddle. pay close attention to this one: could the job numbers we just for the munch of marsh raise the un-- for the month of march end up raising the unemployment rate? steve moore joins us live. steve, how could that possibly be? we good numbers and we are feeling somewhat -- encouraged a little bit. tell me, how could the good jobless numbers turn out to raise the employment rate? >> the numbers were pretty good given how bad the numbers have been for the last couple of years. we finally got private sector
10:09pm
job growth for the first time in many months. you have to be relieved about that and feel somewhat upbeat. maybe this economy has a pulse after all. as we look at the numbers there's a couple of things that glare out. one, a lot of the workers who are unemployed have been unemployed for more than 18 months. there's a long term unemployed, they can find jobs. that's really heart breaking for people. a lot of those people are the people who are the bread winners for the family. a lot of jobs are coming from government. you know way genesse they are coming from. the census bureau touted 1/3 to 1/4 of all the new jobs in the last report. in the months ahead half a million to a million new census workers that are going to be part-time workers. >> greta: i asked senate majority harry reid that question which we are going to post tomorrow. i did point out we feel
10:10pm
encouraged about the 168,000 increase in jobs in march, a third from the census. they are going to be unemployed in july. that will raise concerns. one of the other things that you said it would take 250,000 new jobs each month for three years to an 8% unemployment level. is that correct and how did you arrive at that number? >> that's right i want to go back to the point about the census workers. the reason this is a problem to have this huge surge in employment over the next few months as we have all the people knocking on doors taking the census count. as you just said, those people are going to be out of work in june and july. you going to get a teller blip up -- a temporary blip up and it is going to fall again. there's 100,000 new people who enter the workforce each month. it is going to take 250,000 new jobs a month for the next
10:11pm
three years just to get the unemployment rate down to 8% which is still a high unemployment rate for the united states. >> greta: when i saw this number knowing we were so with the 168,000 jobs in march i read 250,000 each month for three years the only thing i could hope is thank you were dead wrong on that number. >> i wish i were. we've got a big labor force, eight million people lost their jobs in the last two years since this recession started. it takes a long time to get americans back to work. we have to generate twice as many jobs as we did in this last report to start bringing this unemployment rate down. >> greta: indeed that's what we hope to do and want too do. steve, thank you. in two minutes, tiger woods in his own words. he talks about his stint in sex rehab. his tear car accident.
10:12pm
and -- his mysterious car accident and whether his wife is with him at the masters tournament. on the record special guest. you get answers directly from senate majority leader harry reid. we do lock horns over the so-called cornhusker kickback. the true price of the health care bill and much, much more. that's minutes away. ah looks like somebody's a winner. ha, not me! cause shipping is a hassle. different states, different rates. not with priority mail flat rate boxes from the postal service, if it fits it ships anywhere in the country for a low flat rate. so shipping for the chess champ in charleston is the same as shipping for the football phenom in philly? yep. so win! actually, i think yodeserve this. no, i deserve this. wow, got one of those with a mailmann top? priority mail fl rate box shipng starts at $4.95, only from the postal service. a simpler way to ship.
10:13pm
investors are demanding more for their money. good. this time, i'm watching fees like a hawk. i hate hidden fees. why should i have to pay for something that i shouldn't have to pay for? td ameritrade's pricing is clear and it's straightforward... it's spelled out upfront. no hidden fees... no bait and switch. no gotchas.
10:14pm
and there's one flat rate for online equity trades... for big accounts... or small ones. that's the way it ought to be. time for fresh thinking. time for td ameritrade. . >> greta: what tiger woods is trying to get at talking to you. getting ready for his big come back. first tiger woods taking questions at a news conference. >> are you still in rehab and what is that rehab for? >> i was in there to take a hard look at myself and i did. i've come out better. certainly a much better person for it than i was going in.
10:15pm
does that mean i'm ever going to stop doing that? no. i will still continue with my treatment. >> what was it for? >> that's personal. >> was there a time prior to that you thought you needed therapy? did you ever try to quit whatever it was? >> no, i was not in that frame of mind. >> did ambien play a role in the car crash? were you described by witnesses as mumling, snoring, sockless and according to hospital report admitted as a possible od. >> the police investigated the accident and they cited me $166. >> what sent you to the hospital? >> i had a busted up lip. and a pretty sore neck. an that was it. -- and that was. >> five stitches. >> could you had been playing better had you had more discipline in your personal life? >> i would like to say yes.
10:16pm
>> is there some element of you that wanted to get caught? >> i don't all i know is i acted poorly. made just bad decisions. >> how did you fool so many people for so long? >> tom, i fooled myself as well. as i said, i lied to a lot of people. a lot of people. kept others in the dark. >> will elin and the kids be joining you for the masters? [ inaudible ] >> elin is not coming this week, no. >> greta: joining us live in augusta, georgia, executive editor for golf world. how has tiger woods been playing lately in the days and weeks later --or6hr -- leading p to this tournament? >> this is the first we've seen him in five weeks and he was a little erratic which is to be expected when you have
10:17pm
been away from competition that long. you can practice all you want. but you don't get the sense of until you in that situation. he's going to be experiencing a pressure this week that he hasn't experienced in a long time. >> greta: ron, what does it mean to golf if he wins the tournament? what does it mean if he loses? to him. here's what tiger woods has to do, he has to change the conversation away from his personal life into his professional life. the way to do that is to win. america loves a winner. they will forgive a lot if you you can seed. we've been talking for five months about his personal life. he needs to shift that conversation and get people asking golf questions. >> greta: it is interesting, when he was out of game i heard the golf revenues went down in so many different ways. i'm wondering if he doesn't make a comeback what does it
10:18pm
mean for the gust this sport? >> the main and immediate impact is on the tv ratings of those events that he normally plays in. those ratings go down, unquestionably. the business model for the pga tour is solid. they've got contracts that extends several years in advance. does tiger woods give them something may have never had the most famous athlete in the world? absolutely. it doesn't mean that the business model is broken. it does mean that those events that he plays in the tv ratings are going to take a hit. >> greta: is he likely to be heckled on the golf course? >> i don't think so. this is augusta. these fans have been coming here for generations. they tend to be knowledgeable, restrained. i was on the tee today when he hit his first shot there was polite applause. they withheld their approval from him, not by booing but by not cheering.
10:19pm
>> greta: thank you sir. next, quick quiz: which former nfl star is running for congress? what party or group does he claim affiliation? democrat, republican or tea party? start guessing. you are going to meet him next. >> plus, this is big. harry reid goes on the record. how does he explain the so-called cornhusker kickback? is he worried he will lose in november? find out minutes from now, from the senator.
10:20pm
10:21pm
10:22pm
>> greta: football star john runnion is making a leap from the gridiron to the world of politics. runnion a republican is running for politics in new jersey. good evening why is it you want to go from one contact sport to another contact sport, politics? >> i figure it is a smooth transition. there's a lot of sim -- similarities between the two. i believe we need to make changes. the way we are headed now is not in a good direction. >> greta: your democratic congressman incumbent in your district voted no as a democrat on health care. what do you say about that? >> we need to look at
10:23pm
mr. adler's voting record throughout his in the new jersey state legislature. he's very, very liberal in his votes. it is getting to the point where he has realized his career is in jeopardy and he's trying to vote as as his constituents would this being a traditionally republican district. trying to match in an effort to save his job. >> greta: you have a primary. how do you distinguish yourself from your competitor within the same party? >> i think it is a big thing of being yourself and going out and taking care of your business. i relate that back to things i experienced in the nfl. you don't worry about your opponent all the time. you do what you can do. put your work in. put your beliefs out there. the voters are going to make the decision. you don't really have to worry about it. >> greta: do you have any concern or worry that the tea party movement in any way is going to create an issue for
10:24pm
the republican party nationally for the midterm election? >> well, i think when you look at the tea party in general, we both have very conservative value us. no matter where you are on the spectrum, you are going to agree and disagree on certain things. i think the biggest thing where i come from my stance is take a lot of common sense. special interests are getting in the way. that's what a lot of people are upset about. if you keep the doors open and don't slam 'em shut with special interests just allow people to have conversations i think that's where a lot of people are looking to go. >> greta: what is the story about donovan mcnabb you played with him, why the redskins what is that going to do with the redskins and eagles? >> eagles had three starting quarterbacks on the roster they were able to shop each one individually. ultimately ended up being donovan going to washington which surprised a lot of
10:25pm
people around here, special lit fact that they are playing in the divisions twice a year. interesting thing, they have traditionally washington they have a great defense. if they can come out and put together some scoring drives and put points on the board they are are a formidable team in the nfc east. >> greta: it is a little like having donovan mcnabb go from the eagles to the redskins, they are going to play against each other, like brett favre going from the packers to the vikings. both incredible rivalries now they've given away or lost, however you want to describe it, their quarterbacks. >> but minus the i want to play, i want to retire, i want to play, i want to retire fiasco. >> greta: it doesn't have that in terms of everything that you have learned in football, how is that going to help you be a better congressman or is that just a different chapter in your life? >> i think there's a lot of similarities.
10:26pm
i always step back and look at my background in playing teams sports my whole life taking that approach into congress. it is not about me feeding my ego going to congress. i'm here to take the team concept. listen to what constituents have so say. take that as a leader to d.c. and get changes made. it is not about keeping your political job. making a run at an extended run in office. it is about going down there and making positive changes. >> greta: we are going to be watching your race because it is going to be exciting. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> greta: next, senate majority leader harry reid guess on the record. how does he explain the so-called cornhusker kickback? is afraid he's going to lose his reelection fight in november? things get a bit fiery. >> karl rove and president are working to the on something. we can prove that, minutes

10:29pm
>> greta: now most powerful united states senator goes on the record. senate majority leader harry reid. we went to senator reid's home in searchlight, nevada. why do you think there was such -- i don't want to use a term that overstates it, there
10:30pm
were a lot of people that didn't like it. more were unhappy with the health care bill than were happy with it. why did you think that? >> because the loud minority made a lot of noise. now that the legislation passed, it is amazing how much different people attitude is. traveling on an airplane people are so nice to me. we have people -- it wasn't that way before. we have people coming, sending me notes in church. i have a disabled daughter, thank you very much for taking care of her. people have changed. even the republicans have changed their tone. i was in salt lake doing church business this past weekend. i was interesting, the newspapers there and the conservative bastion of america, utah, even the republican leaders up there are saying we don't want to change the things that are already in effect we want to improve some of the things that are going to happen
10:31pm
later. everybody with the rare -- everybody acknowledges with the rare exception what we did was terrific. >> greta: that's such a different sort of concept i have or -- so many people come up to me who are unhappy. when i was in boston, which is such a huge democratic city and of course massachusetts democratic state, people were coming up to me and they would say, five been a democrat my whole life. my entire family has been democrat. i've never voted democrat. i'm so mad at what the democrats are doing in washington on this health care and stimulus bill i'm voting republican. and sure enough, you got a new united states senator, a republican. i heard the opposite. >> well, first of all, massachusetts was a totally unique state. they already had health care they were afraid we were messing with their health care. most states have no health care.
10:32pm
it wasn't all health care. we had a few other problems. without den greating the campaign or anything about -- denigrating the campaign or anything -- >> greta: coakley? i thought she ran a good campaign. she was up 19 points on december 20th. >> until she came back from her three week vacation? >> >> greta: you met with senator ben nelson and gave the nebraska deal. they were furious about the nebraska deal i think that sunk her. >> perhaps. [ talking over each other ] >> remember the nebraska deal, was terrific for our country. why do i say that? because now everybody has a nebraska deal. every state in the union. >> greta: i don't think a lot of people feel like do you senator on that a lot of people were disturbed about the fact on the eve of the vote that two united states senators meet and president obama had promised transparent.
10:33pm
>> all of a sudden, senator ben nelson walks out and says i'm going to vote on this. it wasn't your promise on transparent regency. i'm going to vote on this and i got a special deal from my state. the other states are saying what about us? >> did you think it would have been better if i let the bill fail? >> i don't -- >> you're speechless. >> greta: speechless? this is the way it appeared to the american people. this senator senator ben nelson was for sale. that's the way it looked like. it was a sale that all the other american taxpayers are paying for. nobody understood even people in nebraska didn't understand why he this? >> i know fox loves to der rate anything that is democratic in -- better rate anything that is democratic in nature. ben nelson represents his state extremely well. ben nelson a worked on a number of.
10:34pm
issues. former governor of the state he understands it very well. i knew if i this for nebraska i would have it for everybody that's what happen. and i'm totally comfortable with that >> greta: two things. no one ever said that after he walked out there was a long time before we heard about everybody else getting this. i was surprised that senator nelson didn't say to his constituents what are you complaining about i you something that no ones got. >> i was a little surprised about that myself. >> greta: the fact that he came out so weak with his hat in his hand made me more suspicious why he wasn't. i would have that, i would have expected a different advocacy than the one he gave. i thought that added to sort of like what's up? >> i said ben if i had gotten that for nevada i would have yelled from it the rooftops, he didn't and that's a decision he made.
10:35pm
>> greta: if you thought everybody was going to get that it day when you senator nelson, why didn't you offer it to everybody? >> bus i didn't have it for everybody at that time. i thought i could get it as we moved along in the legislation and i did. >> greta: you're telling me when the two of you sat down you said ben, nebraska's it now, obviously my words, after we get this passed we go for everybody? >> no. he this for himself he wanted it. i said to myself, good that's a way i can help medicaid in tpheuf and the rest of the country and that's -- in nevada and the rest of the country and that's what i did. but i didn't trumpet it to my other senators. by the time we finished with our meetings in the white house and other places everybody got it. >> greta: next, more with senator reid. the polls do not look good for senator reid they look bad. is he worried he's about to
10:36pm
lose his seat? karl rove teams up with president obama. really? those two? karl rove in his own words coming up. on the record continues live from caesar's palace in las vegas, next. [ male announr] bobby sinclair.

10:39pm
>> greta: next more with harry reid. but first to our new york newsroom with ainsley earhardt.
10:40pm
>> reporter: we are continuing to keep you up-to-date on the latest developments out of west virginia. the scene of the deadly coal mine explosion. nine recollection cue teams are working trying to pull survivors out of the mine which covers several square miles in the rug good mountains of raleigh county 30 miles south of charleston. seven workers confirmed dell. another 19 still missing. one injured worker in intensive care at a charleston hospital. the explosion happened around 3:00 this afternoon eastern time believed to have been by methane gas. the required communication system knocked out by in blast. the mine does have oxygen and airtight chambers. we'll keep you updated. back to greta. >> greta: we are live at caesar's palace in las vegas, nevada. earlier senate majority leader harry reid went on the record at his home in searchlight,
10:41pm
nevada. now thank you are back in nevada you are kicking off your -- now that you are back in nevada you are kicking off your campaign, a bus trip? >> we used to do this all the time but it is kind of out of fashion because 90% live in the ren areas but in rural nevada they turn out stronger than the population. i'm looking forward to doing this. it reminds me when i first got started. >> greta: how come your poll numbers are so bleak here? you are the senate majority leader. as i look at recent polls, a month old, they are bleak. >> first of all, they are not as bleak as a newspaper here tries to make them. we're doing fine. the polls are fine. i'm not going to get into a poll -- the only poll that matters is the one in november. but we are doing fine. even the latest polls put out by the newspaper which is --
10:42pm
runs an editorial every other day against me, shows that with the multiple candidates in the race i win the election. we are pushing this election. recognizing that the last serious low i had was 12 years ago. >> greta: 400 some votes you beat -- >> exactly 428. the last election was not much of a rate. >> greta: 61% you won the vote. >> it was really not a race. i never met my opponent. since then, we've had five or six -- five or 600,000 people move to the stay. no state has been hit harder by the economic down turn than nevada. we pled in foreclosures sadly for a long time. difficult time, unemployment is high. there's a lot of things that are in the way of my going through on an easy victory. >> greta: let's talk about the economic scene i imagine that
10:43pm
has a huge bearing in terms of people going to the polls in november. why is nevada hit so hard? what is the economic explanation? >> nevada led the nation in economic vitality for 20 years. it was a state where people could make money without even trying. real estate you would put a house up for appraisal by the time it came to the realtor they kept bidding higher than place. it was a great place to be. theres with a lot of overbuilding. when the economic downturn came a lot of our construct stopped and people didn't come here as much as they did. those that came here didn't spend as much money as they used to. so our tourism industry has been hit hard. >> greta: why was the stimulus bill not soon an pressureable effect -- appreciable effect
10:44pm
here? people are hurting here. >> first of all, over the country. it is very difficult to say to someone who has lost their job, afraid they are going to lose their job. has lost their home, afraid they are going to lose their home. hard to say, he did but for me things would be worse. we did a lot to stop a worldwide depression, no question. but that's little comfort to people struggling now. if we hadn't done what we did things would be much worse. >> greta: which brings me to the thought of health care bill. there's the so-called doctor fix 200, 250 billion dollars that will happen. but wasn't included in. which makes me think everyone is playing with the numbers since that is health care. why wasn't that included in the numbers? >> first of all, when you have both sides trying to jimmy the numbers you go to somebody
